Tottenham have announced they will continue to play all their home fixtures at Wembley for February after further delays in the construction of their new stadium

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have played all of their home matches again at Wembley this season after spending all of the previous campaign at the same venue.

Now more issues with the critical-safety systems have pushed the opening date of Spurs’ new stadium back even further.

This means that Spurs will play their home Champions League match against German giants Borussia Dortmund in the last-16 on February 13 at Wembley.

All their home Premier League fixtures against Watford (January 30), Newcastle United (February 2) and Leicester City (February 10) will also be played at the national stadium along with a possible fifth round FA Cup tie.

Southgate is worried about England’s future

The national team manager doesn't like that the number of English players starting in Premier League games is going down.

“I should like to apologise to our fans and thank you for your continued patience,” Spurs chairman Daniel Levy said on the club website.

“The response from those who attended the familiarisation event was great to hear and reinforced our commitment to deliver an exceptional matchday experience for everyone.

“We shall now seek clarity in respect of building test schedules and test event dates and provide further information on these in the next two to three weeks.”

All supporters who bought tickets in Category C for the moved Premier League matches will be refunded by Spurs due to Wembley’s 51,000-seater capacity.
